Dear Prospective Client,

I work as an EN > IT translator/transcriptionist/subtitler and copywriter. I was born and raised in Italy but I am now based in London, UK, although I feel more like a commuter. I go back to Italy very frequently so that my native language skills don’t become rusty. I always had a passion for writing, reading and foreign languages, therefore, after a three year career in travel and tourism I decided to retrain as a translator and went back to university. I graduated with a first class degree in Applied Translation. I started translating professionally in 2004/5 and since then I have gained extensive experience in translation for subtitling and audiovisuals, travel & tourism, marketing & advertisement and pharmaceutical/medical texts. Moreover, I translated documents for Italian NGOs, on a volunteer basis, covering topics of international development and food security.

Beside my BA in Translation I am currently writing a dissertation about chocolate consumption in the UK, as part of MA studies in Anthropology of Food. Thanks to this course I acquired specialized knowledge of social anthropology theories, as well as various areas related to food such as industrialized agriculture, fishery, national & international policies, environmental issues, gastronomy & cooking, food security and famine relief, alternative production, ethical consumption, food safety and the food industry. My recent Continuous Professional Development activities include Marketing skills for translators with, a Food and Wine translation and food writing course, and a translation course in wellbeing, health and alternative medicines.
